FishWithMe.net - Save. Learn. Fish.
Fishwithme.net is more than a website. It's a community.
Fishwithme.net is the ONLY web-based network that helps everyday anglers find fishing buddies to share costs, learn and share tips and techniques, and fish more. Our founder and avid angler, Stacy McCaskill, noticed the countless boats sitting idle dockside and in backyards all across America. Stacy discovered that for many anglers the lack of readily available fishing buddies along with the high cost of marine fuel contributed to less time on the water.
Motivated by the increasing costs of gas and supplies combined with our ever busy and demanding lifestyles, Fishwithme.net came up with the perfect online platform for finding new fishing buddies and setting up shared-cost outings. Fishwithme.net's goal is to help anglers FISH MORE by providing a searchable network of anglers ready to go fishing and a way to easily connect, safely meet new friends, learn new fishing tips and techniques, and securely share in the costs of a fun-filled day of fishing. Fishing is the largest outdoor activity in the world, engaging more than 200 million people with nearly 1 billion fishing outings taken in the USA alone. Fishwithme.net is enabling countless anglers to save more, learn more, and fish more!
